Smooth! How else will you know if that scrumptious crunch is due to peanuts and not a dead insect that died inside ur peanut butter. You guys should check the FDA regulations on peanut butter.


REGULATORY ACTION GUIDANCE:

The following represents the criteria for direct reference seizure to the Division of Compliance Management and Operations (HFC-210) and for direct citation by the District Offices:

1. Filth

a. The peanut butter contains an average of 30 or more insect fragments per 100 grams; or b. The peanut butter contains an average of 1 or more rodent hairs per 100 grams.

2. Grit

The peanut butter is gritty to the taste and the Water-Insoluble Inorganic Residue (W.I.I.R.) is more than 25 milligrams per 100 grams.


This is why I buy organic peanut butter if it's in a jar, or get it fresh made from the machine at one of the local health food stores.


Organic has the same regulations. Most other foods (including peanuts, and all kinds of produce) are also allowed to have a certain amount of debris/filth in them. It's just not possible for them to be totally pristine.

Here's a list of foods and the allowable defect levels:

In the end, it doesn't affect the safety or taste, and if you didn't know about these regulations, you'd be none the wiser.

I prefer crunchy, you can also put a dab on plain dark chocolate for a bit of sweet/saltiness.

Hmmmm, I see. Seems I may want to get my peanut butter straight from the machines that grind them fresh in the stores from now on then. I'd trust them to have less foreign stuff in them than the already grinded stuff that comes pre-made in the jars. I do realize that everything can't be perfectly clean from growing to production though, especially since I now work as a Cashier at a major grocery store chain. Thanks for the information.

And you're right that it doesn't affect safety or taste, but knowing that now makes it kind of gross for me to get it in a jar. Luckily I don't eat peanut butter that often.
